Overview Factbook People Government Economy Trend Analysis

The Faceless Apparitions of Vyolynce is a gargantuan, efficient nation, ruled by That Guy with a fair hand, and remarkable for its public floggings, sprawling nuclear power plants, and daily referendums. The hard-nosed, democratic, humorless population of 25.634 billion Vyos love a good election, and the government gives them plenty of them. Universities tend to be full of students debating the merits of various civil and political rights, while businesses are tightly regulated and the wealthy viewed with suspicion.

The medium-sized government juggles the competing demands of Law & Order, Education, and Healthcare. It meets to discuss matters of state in the capital city of Shadowlands. The average income tax rate is 79.7%, and even higher for the wealthy.

The frighteningly efficient Vyolyncian economy, worth a remarkable 6,062 trillion souls a year, is quite specialized and led by the Book Publishing industry, with significant contributions from Pizza Delivery, Furniture Restoration, and Information Technology. State-owned companies are common. Average income is an amazing 236,516 souls, and distributed extremely evenly, with little difference between the richest and poorest citizens.

Droves of former desperados are applying to join the border police, shadows are becoming popular in pet stores nationwide, the populace has developed a mortal fear of the woods, and judges are all-powerful. Crime is totally unknown, thanks to the all-pervasive police force and progressive social policies in education and welfare. Vyolynce's national animal is the shadow, which teeters on the brink of extinction due to widespread deforestation.

Vyolynce is ranked 2nd in Darkest Corners of the Mind and 862nd in the world for Most Politically Apathetic Citizens, with 100 Whatever.
